This is issue number 294 of this title as well as its last, as the note at the bottom of the back page reads: "The continuation of this paper will proceed in a new Daily Paper, which will make its appearance the beginning of next week." (see). Plus, one of the banner heads on the front page notes: "Some Account of the Alternation Intended to take Place Next Week in the Manner of Publishing this Paper." Over half of the first column is the publisher's discussion of starting a new newspaper after nearly 6 years with this title.
